NASHVILLE, TENN. (OCTOBER 12, 2018) GRAMMY-Award winning and multi-Platinum selling band CASTING CROWNS will be releasing the new studio album, Only Jesus, on November 16th. Today a new song, "Nobody" (ft. Matthew West) is available everywhere and is one of six songs that will be released early from the new project before street date on November 16th.
 
Talking about the new album theme and idea behind it, Casting Crowns' frontman Mark Hall asks "What does it look like when Jesus is our only answer?"
 
"The theme that continued to come up while working on these new songs was that I am not the point - it is not about me, it is about pointing to Him," shares Hall. "God is already at work in our lives, and He has a plan that He places us in so that others can know Him. We are here to show the way to God by how we live, how we react to difficult situations, how we handle trials and troubled relationships. Our hope is that through these songs, you can see what it looks like when Jesus is our only source, our only solution and we are pointing to only Jesus."
 
Recently the band released the title track to radio and digital outlets and has already seen the impact with it jumping into the Top 15 at all AC radio charts in just four weeks. "Only Jesus" has 3.5 million streams across all platforms, and it has been featured on key playlists on Spotify (New Music Friday, New Music Friday Christian, Top Christian), Amazon (Fresh Christian, Playlist Cover, Top 100 Most Played, Christian Hits) and Apple's The A-List Christian list.
 
Casting Crowns will kick off the "Only Jesus" tour in early 2019. They will conclude their 2018 with the "It's Finally Christmas" tour with guest Hannah Kerr. More dates and information coming soon about the upcoming tour. For the rest of the band's 2018 tour dates, click here: http://castingcrowns.com/tour/.
